About Our County

Merseyside Army Cadet Force has around 800 cadets and 140 adult volunteers in 31 detachments spread around the county of Merseyside.

The County is broken down into a County Headquarters (based at Altcar Training Camp) and four Companies:

Sangin (1) Company - 7 detachments in the Sefton area

Kajaki (2) Company - 7 detachments in the Knowsley and St Helens areas

Musa Qala (3) Company - 8 detachments in the Wirral area

Kandahar (4) Company - 7 detachments in the Central/South Liverpool areas

(There is also a Company named Garmsir, which is for Senior Cadets from across the County )

All detachments parade two nights a week between 1900 and 2130hrs, times and days vary by detachment. Cadets also have the
opportunity to take part in weekend training throughout the year and in the Summer the County goes on a week long Annual Camp. Both Cadets and Adult Instructors are also given the opportunity to gain nationally recognised qualifications, such as Duke of Edinburgh Awards, CVQO, St Johns Ambulance and Hearstart First Aid.
